So i got my parents on the phone this evening; they have been without power since 6pm, while mine had flickered a bit but stayed on. Literally right as i said that to my Dad, my power went out. Lol. Thankfully was only out for an hour.

So far, it hasn't been that bad for me on a personal level since i'm just inland enough so that flooding isn't a threat unless The Island is going to sink to the bottom of the ocean (and that only happens in Sideways Universes ;) )

Glad to hear from you @the_shpydar. I was def thinking of you during all this mess! :o

Things like this are entirely at your own risk, 3Dash. If you're worried, try contacting Nintendo proper — at least if they say it won't, you'll have it in writing if they try to give you trouble about it later on down the line. :3

@RetroGBHippie: I think you may have missed LolWut's intent — you had said you still weren't sure whether you'd have the money for one at launch and questioned what the purpose of geting a console at launch was anyway, insinuating the people who chose to do so were foolish. LolWut explained that the people getting one were excited, and just because you may not have the available funds when it hits doesn't make everyone who does have said funds a 'stuck-up prude' (though i'm not so sure if 'prude' was the correct word to use there, haha). LolWut wasn't calling you a prude at all so far as I'm reading that particular exchange.

idk what it is, but sleeping on a proper futon was probably the most refreshing sleep I've ever had — i wouldn't discount it entirely until you've had the chance to give it a shot, Mac. I'd love to have an authentic one here in the US.

@WingedFish: It's not actually just a sheet and pillow, it's called a 'futon' — and it's nothing like the 'futon' we have here in the US. Japanese homes and apartments generally have a much smaller footprint than homes and apartments in the West, so space is at a premium; there's normally not enough space to have multiple beds set up and lying out all the time. a common futon in Japan is a very thick, padded mat that is rolled up and stored away during the day in a closet or a separate compartment in the room, thus that one room can serve as bedroom at night and normal living space during the day. They're quite comfortable, really. the Wikipedia article has more information if you're interested :3

@k8sMum: It's a shame to see you go; i enjoyed having someone around who felt the same way I do about certain things. Please do let us know if you'd like to return :(

@Radixxs, Oddy: so far as I know, he stopped using his Twitter account because he was afraid he'd slip and say something he shouldn't on accident; i believe he's also toned back his use of other social media sites as well for that very reason. He doesn't want to accidentally compromise his job, and I can't blame him, even though I wish it were otherwise. :(

@TheDreamingHawk: iirc, 'moderators' were what set him off the last time he took a break from NL. Please don't poke him about it.

@Mickeymac: Sorry, it sounds like sensationalist parroting to me, and it doesn't quite match the cases involved, that's why i read it the way i did. those articles also aren't taking into account the fact that the cases being decided were between people purposely purchasing these goods for resale here in the US as opposed to the average joe who bought an iPad for personal use while in China and wants to get rid of it a few years later now that he's home. I can't see Apple coming down on that one person or such a suit holding water in court; there's a big difference between the potential cases.

@Wheels2050: What I got from the article was that it concerned devices that had been copyrighted and authorized for sale overseas only. For example, my copy of Ouendan 2 says "For sale and use in Japan only. Commercial use unauthorized, copy and rental prohibited." There are plenty of devices and products that are printed with such language (in fact, all of my NA-purchased DS titles say they're for sale and use in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America only), produced and made for sale only in certain regions. The textbooks and watches cited as examples in the article would have fallen under that guideline easily as they were made for sale and purchase in another country, they were brought to the US, and then they were sold by others in competition with the same exact product that the company was attempting to sell in the US. They made those products and specifically designated them for sale someplace else in the world; that's how the article came across to me when I read it.

Did you read that full article explaining what's going on? This concerns products made and authorized for sale only in another country., like if you choose to pick up an MP3 player while you're visiting Hong Kong since it's a bit cheaper than it is at home, and then you try to resell it a few years later after you've replaced it. It's not going to make selling any used Nintendo device illegal, it's going to make selling an imported Nintendo device illegal. If you import an EU 3DS and then try to sell it down the line, that's where you could run into trouble.

It's still going to impact many of us who choose to import items from other countries for our homes and daily lives, and I don't think it's going to hold water in court down the line when some judge realizes he can't legally sell his mansion with its imported-from-Italy fixtures and such without getting permission from the copyright holders for said fixtures. but it's not going to put a fork in GameStop or Best Buy's used device sales by any means, and it has no bearing on your average everyday iPod or smartphone. I'd say the antiques world is going to be the ones in real trouble if that passes and people actually start enforcing it.

@Mickeymac: improperly cooked snails are quite dangerous, actually — you can wind up with parasites. Also, regarding snails as a food source, i know apple snails were introduced to Taiwan and are now a major threat to rice farming and indigenous wildlife. They're also a threat to taro production in Hawaii (again, introduced as a potential food source) and to agriculture in the US as well. There's nothing wrong with the idea of eating snails IMO, but there are other things to be considered in terms of having them as a major food source (or even as a pet; that's the only reason i know all this D: )

Guys, I made the mistake of biting at his bait last night, and I apologize for getting it going up in here, but fair warning: I can tell you for an absolute fact that nothing you say will ever persuade Otaku to do or say anything other than what he's saying now. In the entire time he's been here at Nintendo Life I've seen absolutely no change whatsoever. You may as well save yourselves the wasted effort and return to discussing things you would like to discuss, because he's done exactly this thing before, and I'm sure he'll wind up doing it again to other kindhearted souls like yourselves who just want to do their best to help someone.

I know it's harsh, but it's true. I'm just tired of watching him drag other people down into frustration over it. :(
